Oh, yes we are. Have Gun Will Travel. I like the Pearls version better.
Cold this morning, but hot by this afternoon. I've already changed out of this cashmere sweater and boots to something less warm. Ropes, ropes, ropes and B&W Tahitian studs.
The ropes used to nest perfectly, but I've restrung them and now the blue akoyas are longer and my first akoyas are shorter. I think I strung my first akoyas too tight. They're still a bit kinky. I hope they'll loosen up with wear but they haven't so far.
Today, part deux. I had a doctor's appt. this morning and it was cold (40F). Came home for lunch and it's going to be 69F by this afternoon. Time to change to a cotton sweater. One less rope and Mom's pearl circle pin.
I think I'm going to restring my first akoya rope again. The kinky tightness is bugging me. Good thing I love restringing pearls, right? I keep forgetting that I don't need to pull Beader's Secret as tight as I used to knot silk. It doesn't stretch out like silk does.
